By any other name?

This is the conversation we have daily at our house:

Me: Bug! Say... dog.
Bug: Dah! Dah! (while signing 'dog'.)

Me: Say.... baby!

Me: Say... Kim.
Bug: Miiiiiiim!

Me: Say.... Mama!
Bug: Daahiee!

Me: No, honey. Say MAH-MAH.
Bug: Daahiee! DAAHIEE! (gleeful smile) DAAHHHIE!

Me: Bug. Please. Say Mommy! Mother! Madre!
Bug: _______________ (by now she has run off to play.)

For the life of me, I can't imagine why she is so smitten with him.

You'd think he lets her stay up past her bedtime playing with her coloring stuff or something.

Sometimes, he even lets her color on his page, too.
I mean, in real life, they barely even like each other. Obviously.

Daddy and his daughter. This is my good life.

We have the same conversation at my house. She will run to the door with she hears the garage door open shreiking "Dada! Dada!" I ask her to say Mama and I get a blank stare.
